Game 7 of the TOR vs BOS playoff series is tonight.
It’s win or go home.
The series is tied 3-3 and someone is going to take the series tonight.
The Bruins dominated most of the game on Monday, but could not pick up the win. Even though they won 63% of faceoffs and had the most zone time, the Leafs were able to clog up shooting lanes, keep the Bruins mostly to the outside, and force shots wide. The Leafs blocked 23 shots to 6 by the Bruins. After Jake DeBrusk drew first blood early into the 2nd period, the Bruins gave up the lead, a mere 37 seconds later. Tuukka gave up a total of two goals in the 2nd, but was impressive in the 3rd, making some plays reminiscent of the Tim Thomas cup run, and giving the skaters the opportunity they needed to even it back up. Alas, they could not turn that into goals. Most disappointing was the power play, which generated only one shot in 4 minutes over the night.
Let’s do some lines.

The Leafs get Nazem Kadri back from his suspension, but Leo Komarov is still out due to a lower body injury from an attempted hit on Kevan Miller in game #2.
